Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Acquired by William Drury Lowe of Locko Park on one of the occasions when he visited Italy with his wife between 1839 and 1865 and thence by descent to the present owner

    LITERATURE:
    J.P. Richter, Catalogue of Pictures at Locko Park (London, 1901), no. 116, p. 48 (as in the manner of Sustermans)

    The composition is taken from the original work by Sustermans in the Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence. Charles Duc de Guise (1571-1640) was a staunch supporter of Henri IV of France, who appointed him Governor of Provence and later created him Grand Master of France and Admiral of the Levant, so that he became one of France's most distinguished military leaders both on land and sea.
